Jewelry Crafting Materials
DustOuncesPlatingsTrait Materials

There are four types of materials involved in Jewelry Crafting: Dust and Ounces, Grains and Platings, and Trait Materials.

Dust is the raw material that can be found in the world in jewelry crafting seams. By themselves they cannot be used, but they may be refined into Ounces at any jewelry crafting station.

Ounces are used to make Jewelry, including Necklaces and Rings.

Grains can be refined into Platings, which can be used to improve existing jewelry.

Trait Materials (once refined from their Pulverized form) are used to craft jewelry with traits.

In addition to jewelry items, platings are also used in Sketches for furnishings. Specifically:

  • Normal sketches (if they existed) do not require any Plating.
  • Fine quality blueprints from 9 Terne Plating.
  • Superior quality blueprints from 6 Iridium Plating.
  • Epic quality blueprints from 3 Zircon Plating.
  • Legendary quality blueprints from 1 Chromium Plating.

Trait Materials
Just like the other equipment crafting skills, there will be nine traits which can be researched and crafted. Three of these will be those that currently exist, and there will be six new traits. Unlike the other skills, however, the materials for these traits are mostly found in pulverized form, and must be refined to produce usable materials. Just like refinable style materials, 10 pulverized trait materials can be refined into 1 usable item.

Finding jewelry with the newer traits to research is not as simple as with other gear. Just as before, you will normally only find items with the original three traits: Robust, Arcane, and Healthy, as well as non-craftable Ornate. In addition, jewelry crafting writs will now sometimes give you Intricate jewelry, just like the other gear crafting writs. For the others, you will need to do a bit more work, or get other players to craft items for you to research. The chart below shows how to acquire the rarer traits:

Trait Source
Bloodthirsty Rarely found as rewards for Weekly Trials quests.
Harmony Rarely acquired in Undaunted chests.
Infused Rarely found in Psijic Portals.
Triune Rarely found from daily board quests in Cyrodiil.
Protective Ring from completing Summerset Main Quest, Necklace from Psijic Order quests.
